We are dedicated to the health and happiness of pets and strive to give all animals a loving home.
Hoedspruit Paws is a Non Profit Organisation based in the picturesque town of Hoedspruit, South Africa. It is our mission to make a difference to the lives of ordinary pets. We help find suitable homes for abandoned or unwanted pets, assist with food to those in need, sterilize all dogs and cats that we receive before re-homing, educate with regards to pet care, vaccinations and sterilization … and generally trying to improve the lives of animals in and around our community.
A Little Love
Hoedspruit Paws has made a difference to many neglected and abused dogs. Most of this work has been in surrounding rural areas, but also within our local community. We have come across many a horrific story and it is always heartbreaking to know that “Man’s Best Friend” is treated so disrespectfully. We aim to help each animal, however many a time it is necessary to end their misery, which is always a heart breaking thing to do. All animals are immediately taken to our Vet – Provet, upon evaluation a call is made as to how the animal will be treated and cared for. This is done through our many volunteer foster parents. Once back to health, the animal is found a Forever Home.
Hoedspruit Paws sterilizers every pet that it comes across. This is done through Provet which generously assists with dog and cat sterilization. There are far too many cats and dogs needing good homes for people to carry on breeding with their pets. Giving them away is not the answer as many land up in awful homes, being neglected, abused or suffering litter after litter. We are trying to educate our community about the importance of sterilization. Many people feel that it is not fair to the animal – this is however incorrect and it is far more beneficial for an animal to be spayed or neutered. It is your responsibility as a pet owner to do this. The Hoedspruit Alley Cat Initiative is also a vital part of the community as feral cats breed at an alarming rate and do mix with the indigenous African Wild cats, thereby reducing the purity of the breed.
Hoedspruit Paws would like to encourage all animal owners to “walk the Talk”. Love your pets, they love you unconditionally. Enjoy them for they can bring you plenty happiness. Respect and care for them as they are in your hands. Owning a pet is not a right, it is a privilege. A pet is not an object that can be discarded when the novelty wears off, it is a life, a living being and deserves to be treated as such.
